CT Spotlight Week 5 - Nessie

Hi everyone!

So I'm typing this up Tuesday night and since 1) I'm just getting over the flu and 2) we had an extremely busy day with a picnic and play at the park, Easter shopping, and dying eggs, I'm very tired, so I'm going to keep this short.

This week for the CT spotlight we have Ness. Ness has been on my team since the beginning. In fact I think she may have been the first that I welcomed into my CT forum. Get to know a little bit more about her.

Tell me a little bit about yourself.

So how long have you been digital scrapbooking? May or June of ‘09

Did you ever do any traditional paper scrapbooking? What made you switch? Do you still do any paper scrapbooking? Yes, books of traditional scrapbooking. Little fingers helping w/ traditional scrapbooking really isn’t very helpful. I would do traditional still if my scrap room wasn’t such a giant mess.

Do you have any other hobbies? Camping, Photography

What do you find yourself scrapbooking the most - your kids, pets, significant other, family, etc? It’s gone more and more to my kids but I scrap everything.

What couldn't you live without when you make a layout? For example, undo, a certain element, a program, etc? Photoshop. The versatility and creativity is fantastic.

Do you gravitate towards any certain color or style when yo
u make a layout? Earth Tones or muted colors. I’m not really one for the really bright colors generally

Do you do anything on the side, such as designing, designer services, scrap-4-hire? Don't forget to include a link or something so we can pay you a visit! Sadly I do a bunch of designing but nothing to do w/ scrapbooking. I design CD/DVD face art , covers etc.

Where's your blog? http://nesspark.blogspot.com

Who's your favorite designer (other than Pixiemama)? Give them a plug - include a link to their shop! Michelle from Craftyscraps http://shopcraftyscraps.com/

Tell us one thing about yourself that very few people know. Both my parents have been married 3 times so I have 1 brother, 2 half sisters, 8 step-sisters and 2 step-brothers

Tell us one thing about yourself that is unique or weird. I married my high school sweetheart and we’ll have been together 15 years on April 1st
, no joke.

What's your favorite layout that you've made? http://kjoistudios.com/gallery2/showphoto.php?photo=10052

Give us a link to a layout of yours that has very few comments so we can leave you a little love. http://scrappity-doo-dah.com/gallery/showphoto.php?photo=19179

I apologize for no picture or anything, like I said I'm really tired. I'll just leave you guys to your freebie and be on my way. I'll be sending out a newsletter at some point tomorrow, hopefully I'll be a little more awake for that lol.

The freebie I have for you today is a cluster frame made by Ness with elements from both Girl's Day Out and Hop Into Spring. I think it's gorgeous, take a look for yourself:

I'm gonna get out of here before I go delirious with exhaustion. I do have to stay up to finish watching my Law and Order: SVU though. DVR is so wonderful!

Have a great day everyone!
